Production Trials for Blue Metal Detectable Nitrile Rubber

08 May 2018
MacLellan Rubber has completed the pre-production tests for its new Nitrosamine free Blue Metal Detectable rubber and is currently undertaking production batch trials.

Blue Metal Detectable Nitrile Rubber

In January, we announced we were developing an alternative to silicone based Metal Detectable materials using Nitrile rubber and that the material will also be Nitrosamine free.

Simon Winfield, director at MacLellan Rubber, said: "I'm pleased with the initial response we've received from customers to our development of a cost-effective new product that will offer exceptional mechanical performance and competitive value against silicone and similar compounds."

Early detection of particle contamination

The new Blue Metal Detectable rubber is aimed at the safety critical sealing applications used in the food, pharmaceutical and biomedical sectors. The material advances the elimination of contamination by the polymer into the process not only through early detection of particle contamination, but also through eradication of leachable Nitrosamine carcinogenic compounds found in many standard polymers. 

The new Blue Metal Detectable Rubber will meet the European FoodSafe Standard EU1935:2004 and will be free from Animal Derived Ingredients (ADI free). It will be available in a variety of formats, either cured or uncured, with full manufacturing batch testing and release certificates, as required.
